WINPACCS Cloud 2021.02 – now available

Two weeks ago WINPACCS Cloud was updated to version 2021.02.

From now onwards, the new versions of WINPACCS Accounting 4.4.0 and WINPACCS Cashbook 2.4.0 are available for downloading in the Customer portal.

Numerous improvements have been made.

Project categories have been introduced as a superordinate project characteristic. The idea here is to incorporate project characteristics into the software that already play a major role on the project level. Initially there will be three project categories: "Project", "Office" and "Partner project". Going forward we will add “Programmes” as a fourth project category; the groundwork has already been laid.

When a new bank account is created, the validity of the Bank Identifier Code (BIC) is now checked and basic bank data is completed automatically.

In Project controlling, digital vouchers can now also be uploaded for all postings that are not from Accounting 4.

These and other important new features can be found in this release’s White Paper. A detailed overview of all the changes can be found in the Release notes.

First Customer forum: Office integration

Our first Customer forum this year will be on the topic of "Integration of offices in WINPACCS". At this event, we’ll show you how we’d like to integrate the use of the "Office” project category into WINPACCS. This Customer forum is your chance to submit change requests and ideas directly to us, as – it goes without saying – we can only design WINPACCS to fit your needs, if we know what they are.

The Customer forum will be held on Friday 13 August from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm as an online event. You can register by sending a brief mail to:
